    How many interested in OC dinners in Portsmouth/Suffolk/Western Branch/Deep Creek?

    Geography, traffic, and tolls have effectively cut Tidewater into 3 different regions. There's often something going on in Virginia Beach or Hampton but I'm interested in getting together those of us in the middle. Of course, all are welcome, but for those of us here in "Western Tidewater," it would be nice not to have to make the drive for a change.

    If there was an OC dinner in the vicinity of, say, Chesapeake Square Mall, how many of you would consider attending? Having an idea of the size of the group will determine venue choice, so please chime in.

    I would show up for a dinner in Chesapeake if my schedule permitted (meaning a Saturday event or early Sunday). I am in Virginia Beach, but can easily bypass the tolls with Chesapeake Square Mall area being the location. Most of us are willing to commute within reason so long as we can avoid tolls.

    Pick a location, date & time and post it at least 1 1/2 weeks in advance.

    Build it, they will come.

    If only 2 or 3 attend, consider it a success. The idea is to get to know one another and share experiences. Having broken bread with people and chatted about things of common interest, they will never be an anonymus/faceless members of this forum again - they will become your friends.

    I've made the drive to Richmond and would make one to that side, even if I had to pay a toll... lol

    Hey, Kevin, I don't want to hijack your idea, but I've found a Chesapeake location and can post up in the events folder if you don't mind. I don't want to step on any toes.
